Juan Ignacio Chela bids adieu to tennis
Argentinean Juan Ignacio Chela announced his retirement from professional tennis.

Former World No. 15 Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina bid adieu to tennis.

"After many years it was time to move to another stage in my life, I retire from professional tennis," a statement in Spanish on the 33-year-old's Twitter account said.

Chela won six ATP World Tour singles titles and three doubles titles. Chela’s 14 years long career also saw some controversies. Like a typical Argentine player, Chela won all his titles on clay.

Chela reached a career-high singles world ranking of 15 in August 2004, after reaching the quarter-finals of the French Open in the same year. He also made it to the last eight at Rolland Garros in 2011 and reached the same stage at the 2007 US Open. The Argentine quit tennis, ranked as 176 in the world.

Compatriot and sometime doubles partner Gisela Dulko, who herself retired last month, led the tributes.

"Congratulations on your great career Juan! Welcome to the club!" said Dulko on her Twitter account.
